  1. It's taken a bit to re-read where we are as I plan on the draft for this week and @PyeMcGowan, I am still completely confused by what you posted, can you message me so we can talk about it before I finish writing. Thanks.
  2. @Tikva: Thanks for the statement. This perfectly sets up a response by me concerning the plane and where the conflict goes from here.
  3. Update: I still owe more storyline concerning the plane and that is coming in the next few days. @Fulgistan and @Sayf: I'll get in touch with both of you over the course of the week about what the FAA's plan is. @Greater Serbia: thank you for responding about the drastically reduced number. I know you want to be engaged in the fight but with a large Tagmatine presence in the conflict, I needed to balance my 'ally' with a nation said 'ally' doesn't have the rosiest in-character opinion of (I know there are comments concerning deliberations on cooling the heat between the countries but I don't want the Civil War to act as a proxy for that situation). @Tikva: I got your message -- I have sent you a response as to how you could proceed.
  4. Private Communique to the Serbian Volunteer Guard Military officials and advisors have reviewed your offer of deploying over 5,000 men into Aluxia to combat the rebels plaguing our country. Several had expressed extreme reservations about their involvement on the ground -- as it is already hard enough to coordinate with our Tagmatine brothers in the field. At least one had a genuine concern over using paramilitary units instead of proper military soldiers. At this juncture, we do not need the entirety of the brigade. The Imperial Army has the FAA on the run back into their own territory and the Navy, in coordination with their Tagmatine counterparts, have the port of Gradin locked down. All we need to do is continue applying pressure on them. We would like to pay the Guard a retainer fee to have two fast strike teams and their associated equipment ready for deployment at a moment's notice. If a time requires the full utilization of the SVG, then we will revisit the larger terms and conditions you listed in your previous communication. This war will not be won on pure numbers, which are already in the Imperial Government's favor, but with good tactics, and swift conviction. The FAA may have bold guts, but it won't be enough. They will fall soon enough...
  5. In the Skies over Aluxia The war was intensifying with no end in sight. International aid was a challenge to receive between the Tagmatine blockade of Gradin and the congestion at the harbor at Narlis. Some nations had decided to take the very risky approach of delivering critical supplies by air. There were advisories issued by the global organization that oversaw air travel and strongly urged all aircraft to avoid Aluxia. Most heeded the advice, but not this aircrew from a nation in the south of Eurth. "...we're entering Aluxian airspace now..." reported the first officer. They had entered it unfortunately right in the center of the warzone. The airplane proceeded on course for a minute until an alarm bell began to sound. "What's going on..." The onboard computer spoke up. "Incoming projectile...3000 feet..." Most commercial airliners did not come with this level of technology -- it was procured from a military firm from Tikva for they had this type of detection equipment on every passenger and cargo plane. "What the hell!" yelled the captain. "...2000 feet..." It was getting closer and closer with each passing second. "Attempting evasive maneuvers," remarked the captain. The large cargo plane was not built for such flexibility. "...1000 feet...500 feet..." "Too late!" The projectile, a rocket, hit them in the wing, taking out their engines closest to the fuselage, they began losing altitude. There were three other crew members and they were ordered to try putting out as many of the fires that sparked from the impact but it was futile. "We're going down..." They were dropping like a lead balloon. The crew scrambled to get their parachutes on and abandon their aircraft to its fate but another projectile hit them as they were about to jump, nosediving the plane. It would crash into a field three miles south of Orlov. All five crew members were killed. News of the crash reached both the FAA and the Imperial authorities and immediately within hours, each side blamed the other for the incident, and there was certainly going to be condemnation from the international community for such blatant disregard for neutral actors.
  6. I'll have that scene for this weekend. Keep an eye on the thread.
  7. Heads up: in light of Tagmatium's now-non existent events surrounding the Leopard's Throne thread, it does change up his involvement in my conflict. I am still running through an alternate timeline of events. In the meantime, the next post from me will involve a plane going 'missing.'
  8. Imperial authorities back in Vardin were feeling much better following reports that the Free Aluxian Army had been effectively pushed back from Chubka both by the sacrifices of loyalist soldiers but more in part to the Tagmatine aerial support. The Emperor had been kept abreast of developments. Davros was satisfied in the immediate danger being avoided. In response to the FAA offensive, he relayed orders through his top commanders to push their own offensive to the south - into Zygaria. They had recommended that he take advantage of the momentum - and with the FAA at their backs - to strike. A contingent of soldiers would remain in Chukba to safeguard it but the Emperor believed that between the Tagmatine support and the situation on the ground was sufficient enough to carry it out. His Imperial Majesty sat upon the throne reading not just the field reports but the official communique from the Tagmatine military liaison and those on behalf of Kommodos himself through the Foreign Minister. He was not content in the slightest over the idea of instituting reforms or taking on advisors, even if they were from a friendly nation but Valron interjected him during one of his rants. "...if we want to show our Tagmatine friends that we are being responsive and appreciative of their assistance, we need to accept it..." Davros growled but he wasn't about to lose a major advantage over the FAA in terms of numerical or material support and capitulated. Valron nodded to his sovereign and prepared to issue a positive response to the latest diplomatic dispatch from Tagmatika. While things were looking up for the Imperials, the same was not true for the Democratic Forces of the FAA. They had suffered a massive blow in morale and momentum in their stunted offensive upon Chukba. It was supposed to open the door on a rapid assault upon the capital to the southeast and perhaps even end the conflict before it had gotten too far but with their defeat and retreat, the civil war was likely to carry on for much longer, with many more lives to be lost. Solov was furious with the outcome and shouted at his commanding officers. Unlike the Imperials who at least had their loyalty, this was not true for the FAA - these colonels and generals, with their men, were in it for the money more than anything else. Dmitri would scream and shout but ultimately, he couldn't do much more than that - without them - Davros would have essentially won. While Chukba would be out of reach for some time, the FAA was not without victories. Gradin, the second-most important port in the country, was now in FAA hands, giving them an opportunity to bring in support from its clandestine supports abroad. For a few days, several cargo vessels had managed to unload their critically important goods but then the Tagmatine Navy came. They decided that while the FAA could have the port, they would completely negate their ability to use it. Naval ships set up a cordon around the entire harbor and the sea lanes both in and out of the immediate area. It was at that moment that the conflict had gone from primarily one on land to one that would include the coastal waters. The biggest unknown in the entire conflict at this point - for both the Imperials and the Democratic Forces was the loyalty of the Aluxian Navy. The Navy was modest in size but sufficiently powerful enough to play a role in defining the outcome of the war. Gregor Tomorov was in charge of it - big, fat, lazy, and corrupt. Exactly the type of the person you'd want to control something that could go either way. Tomorov had gone up the ranks due to the fact that he had enough friends at court to see to it that he be treated well. He did know naval command but the Aluxian Navy itself was more in the business of protecting its shores than engage in international maritime combat. Davros had been paying him off since the start of the conflict to keep the navy in line and for now, they'd be with the Empire. Fortunately for Davros, the Navy was actually in Priva, a port to the southwest of Gradin, and still in Imperial hands. The FAA was preparing an offensive upon it to further grow its control of the coast. Additionally, the FAA was weighing options on another advance, this time into the middle of the country in an attempt to take over a third of the Empire's air force. But the discussion on such action was halted when news came from their recon teams concerning Imperial forces slowly making their way to the south into Zygaria with the FAA's stronghold of Endvo as their intended target. "...how long until the Imperials march into the Zygarian frontier?" "Four-five days. They're still gathering their strength along the Drenz." "We have time then," responded Solov. "Do you think we can secure the Aluxian Navy's support in that timeframe?" "Most likely not," said one of the assembled commanders. "And even if we could, we are in no position to keep his loyalty for too long, and certainly not enough to force off the Gradin cordon by the Tagmatines." "Get the entire Zygarian artillery battalions formed along the ridges, the light infantry prepared for ambushes along the roads and passes and our remaining armored divisions prepared to intercept." "There is still the matter of Tagmatine air power to contend with..." the officer was interjected by the Premier. "We'll have to knock them out of the sky. We are redeploying the bulk of the mobile SAMs that were in Gradin back up in Endvo and we are expecting, according to our foreign friends, some material from Sayf in the coming days that should even the odds when the attack comes by the Imperials, if not the Tagmatines if they get involved in the offensives themselves." "Rally the people of Endvo. The Imperial offensive ends now." ============ ***CONFIDENTIAL*** From: Imperial Palace, Vardin To: Tagmatine Military Forces in Aluxia and Government in Tagmatika RE: Ongoing Efforts in the War Emperor Davros is greatly appreciative of the Tagmatine support in the fighting that took place outside of the city of Chukba and the positive outcome of that effort that has led to an FAA retreat from that front for the time being. Although the loss of Gradin is unfortunate, it is not imperative to achieving ultimate victory over the rebellious faction wishing to overthrow the legitimate Government. I have discussed your strong recommendation concerning advisors to the Emperor and while he is quite irate about taking on such individuals, I have managed to convince him that they will only further progress relations between our two countries over the long term. He, therefore, accepts the offer and will see them in the throne room upon their arrival. The Aluxian Navy is currently still loyal to the Emperor and we will do everything in our power to keep them on our side and not to defect to the FAA. Tomorov may be a less than ideal commander of such a force, he is not a complete idiot in knowing where he must stand. Upon hearing your efforts to cordon the harbor and sea lanes in and around Gradin, myself and the military command here in Vardin will strongly urge the Navy to provide assistance in that action. In other related military movements, the Imperial Army, using the momentum your intervention will begin its own offensive into Zygaria itself and use it as an opportunity to split the FAA forces in two. I am confident that between our own advance and with Tagmatine support, this conflict will end before long. ~Valron
  9. Could you please put one together using the foundation I've made previously? It would be much appreciated. As I sit here, I should have just had you do it in the first place.
  10. Since Rihan got busy, I just decided to make a very, very rough map: If someone wants to make a far better one for the long-haul, at least you have this one as a foundation to work from. Now, the red arrows denote impending FAA movements, yellow/gold the Imperial Armed Forces, and Purple designates Tagmatine activities. My hope is that this map will be amended as major events unfold so, at this moment, this map depicts what has essentially happened since the end of the Battle of Chukba. I do have a series of posts to make in the Civil War over the next week so I ask that anyone who's posted since I last did so to wait until they see responses from me.
  11. Just forwarded you the relevant information. Thanks for the assist.
  12. I would appreciate that - I'll message you some detail tomorrow when I have a considerable amount of time.
  13. I realized that very need as I was posting my latest piece. I'll work on getting you a map in the next week or so at the latest.
  14. The Free Aluxian Army had begun their dual offensive against the city of Chukba and the port of Gradin. Nearly a fifth of their entire manpower had been deployed in what was supposed to be a lighting offensive to catch the Imperial forces off-guard, however, the plan they had ultimately constructed would not pan out as designed. For three days, the FAA had made considerable progress southwards to Gradin - facing only scant resistance at first until they were in sight of the southerly port. As General Alexei Kornov had predicted in the briefing with the movement's defacto leader, it wasn't going to be simple. In fact, there was a bevy of Imperial rocket launchers positioned on a series of hills to the northeast, firing every ten minutes into the port city, hoping to trash it as much as possible and ultimately - destroy the port's facilities, depriving the rebels of a logistics hub. Kornov swore under his breath. "Now we have no choice but to split our forces," he said to his second-in-command. He looked back at his men. "Take A, C, and F Companies, and take out the rockets. We can't risk advancing while they're firing straight at us," he nodded and proceeded to coordinate a strategy with their commanders. Kornov had no choice but to wait out for the removal of the rockets. He originally had his own but Solov had decided to keep them in protecting Endvo from assault. This would take an entire two days as the bulk of the Imperial infantry units that had been rallied in this part of the country were hiding on the far ridge. Many FAA soldiers had lost their lives in the struggle but the hills were claimed, as were the mobile rocket launchers and the remainder of the rocket ammo, enough that could be used in a similar manner down the road. With the Imperial forces largely stuck within the city, Alexi proceeded to mobilize his forces into the city, the Imperials surrendering by nightfall the following day. Kornov and his engineers would inspect the port as the sun came up and while it had taken damage, the vital cranes, seawalls, and utility systems were largely intact. General Kornov instructed his communications officer to report that Gradin was in FAA control and that the Premier could begin to leverage this victory and translate it into tangible support for their effort. The same result could not be replicated in the attempt to take Chukba. The assault was working well at first but then as they crossed the Drenz, everything went wrong. The Imperials had been following their movements and had deployed their forces along the northern shores and throughout the woods on both sides of the major road into Chukba. It would become a bloody slog but the worst would come as they approached from the southwest, the Imperials on the hills - with their heavy artillery made things painful. The Zygarian artillery, under the FAA, could not deploy in any meaningful way until it was within view of the city. An Imperial infantry battalion repositioned itself under cover of darkness and blocked off the rear of the FAA, pinning them in a tight position. The FAA in addition to bringing little artillery, brought a tiny amount of armored units to support them. The Imperial commander for the area alerted Command back in the capital, who in turn, communicated to their Tagmatine allies to provide aerial support - to the point of taking out the FAA armor - giving them no further advantage in the battle for Chukba. Inside Chukba, in the days leading up to the battle, a curfew had been instituted, but as promised, the Juddish people who wanted to leave were permitted to do so under escort. Per an agreement between Aluxia and Tikva, El Al had deployed upwards of ten flights a day over a nine-day period and had 'evacuated' nearly 30,000 Juddish people and whatever belongings they could pack into suitcases, leaving their homes and for many, their treasures behind. However, there were still over 75,000 more across the country, the majority of whom were now essentially trapped in Chukba. But within the city, tensions between the Juddish minority and the predominant Orthodox community was becoming a major problem. At least one Sakak had been antagonized - when Imperial forces were asked to keep the peace, the Juddish people were ignored.
  15. Yes. The FAA is going to make it two-thirds of the way to Chukba but the Imperial forces will relay coordinates to the Tagmatines to intercept oppositional forces from the skies - either by taking out advancing forces or removing armored units (remember, they don't have strength in tanks or much in the way of mobile AA). On the Gradin front, the FAA will have a far easier time getting it since it's a less important port, and has less capacity for vessels moving in and out of it as opposed to Narlis. I'll have something up tonight.
